No, unless I type through the cursor.

Oh no, not like that it doesn't. I think you've already take the first steps to try and sort it, so report back when your scans are complete.

Have looked at your video, I did in fact have a similar problem a couple of years ago and that turned out to be an iffy driver for my mouse. Perhaps if you go into Device Manager and check out your mouse it might reveal something. Can't do any harm anyway. Have you a spare mouse you could try?

What else are you running when you get this? I've had this happen when coming near to overclocking, so if you're straining your comp too much, don't.
